New York Day 6

 We saw a Ring Wraith. I never knew they wandered through our part of the wood.
 Another day at Sister#2's place where she was staying.

Hoffman Coneys and Hot Dogs can't be beat.... if you can eat a hot dog that is.
 Such a beautiful part of the world!
 Excuse my finger... gotta get used to this camera/phone thing.
 We were happily united with Frodo and Aragorn after they had a rather "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" style adventure to get to NY.
 Kili telling Daddy how good the tiny little rocks taste.

 I think he will probably be a plumber....
... or a beached seal...
 ... or an architech.

 Only one injury during "Red Rover"... who in their right mind would ever call Sam? Oh... Frodo, of course.

 We had a splendid catered meal from Vernak Farms for dinner of Antipasti, crusty-chewy bread, vegetable lasagna and ginger chicken.

 Aunt Phoebe who is always of great and creative gift ideas... as well as a fabulous singer... business card to be posted soon... in the event you live in Southern California and need a joyful, funny entertainer.
 Yeah.... gonna get rid o' the bottle soon as possible....

 The Baby Aunt and her husband.
The ever competing tots

 All the cousins
 Grandma (my mom) doling out the ice cream with the wedding anniversary scoop
 Uncle Bagel taking over the scooping.
 Grandpa (my dad) and the Baby Aunt... who is closer to me in age than to her sister. We are only 12 years apart.

 Beautiful, beautiful brown eyes
 Our God daughter (and niece)

 Marigold making a friend... and conniving extra scoops of ice cream...

 Mom and her sisters.
 An old cookbook with a "dust jacket" of mom and vice-president Nixon after she won the state home economics something-or-other... I need to get that story straight.

All the girls, Mom and aunts in the front, us kids in the back.  Missing are my 2 cousins... girls... of course.
